Cassini Captures Jupiter

The stunning picture of Jupiter on the bottom right comes from NASA’s Cassini spacecraft en route to it’s final destination, Saturn, later this year (July). Released by NASA on November 13, 2003, this planetary mosaic is constructed from 27 images taken on December 29, 2000. I can hardly wait until close-ups of Saturn are released. Early images of the ringed planet, like the one below taken November 9, 2000, and released on December 5, 2003, are already impressive.
